Our son Rob and daughter in law Kelly spent their honeymoon at Hermitage Bay. Their dream was for our family to go back together and experience this beautiful place. All our expectations were met from friendliness of staff to service in all categories. Now our dream is to return one day.. The entire Bannon family

First of all, I want to explain that this resort is the ORIGINAL reason I elected to begin reviewing locations on TripAdvisor; however, I am leaving this until the end/bottom in order to make this review easier for those — probably most of you — that just want to know about this resort. TOP NOTCH service beginning with ‘pre-stay’ emails...

Beautiful location, great food (as in really great) and some of the nicest staff you could come across. Listing their names individually would fill a review so easier to say simply all of them. On our short list of destinations to return to. Thanks for a great stay

If you are wondering if all the reviews could be true that this hotel is THAT good- well it is. It's an incredible hotel with beautiful views. The food and service is incredible- it's just perfect. If you like nature and aren't bothered being surrounded by it- birds flying around on the porch, rooms nestled into the jungle- nature sounds...

Amazing hotel, luxurious tranquility, food amazing, truly a gem, 5 star and the rest. We stopped in one of the Hillside Suites, i would highly recommend . The private beach is a great thing to do and the staff will put together a picnic hamper for you, so you can chill and enjoy the surroundings.

Never thought I would be so fortunate to have experienced such a wonderful resort. Everything I wanted and more... privacy, food was amazing, staff that looked in your eyes and called you by name. Clean beach, hillside cottage was outstanding!

Five stars just aren't enough. You start by being overwhelmed by the stunning physical beauty of the place, the wonderful rooms, the views of turquoise sea, white sand and green mango trees from your shower and private terrace and end by realising that no matter how amazing the place it is the staff who make this hotel truly exceptional.

Our honeymoon at hermitage bay was a dream! Hermitage bay far exceeded our expectations. The staff and service was too notch from the restaurant, to the water sports-such good quality service. We enjoyed every meal and even attended the chef's cooking demonstration. We got a couples massage and my husband said it was the best he's ever gotten. Everything about...

Dear Errin F Thank you for your review. We are all delighted that your honeymoon was a great success. I am sorry that you found the beds a bit hard. We use a standard mattress and try to make it middle range so that it appeals to everyone. My personal preference is for a harder mattress so I hope that...

From the moment we got off the plane I was impressed with the service of this hotel. We were greeted with priority service through the airport with a private taxi to the hotel. Once there we knew we entered paradise. The views and facilities were very clean and well maintained. We had a mountainside suite which offered cart service to...

Dear pat_mosca0541 Thank you for your review. We are all delighted to hear that your honeymoon went so well. Good to hear that you were able to fit in the helicopter trip around the volcano of Montserrat too. It is truly a breathtaking experience to see a live volcano up close together with evidence of the devastation it has wrought...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
~ Conde Nast Traveler 2015 Gold List Winner ~ The quiet, independently owned Hermitage Bay is comprised of just 27 luxury cottages so that "even at its busiest, the place seems remote and quaint." Whether visiting for the first time or returning as a friend, you'll enjoy a welcome familiarity and "sensation of belonging" from the moment you arrive. Tucked into a beautiful bay in one of the most secluded corners of Antigua, it is perfect for those seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Spanning 16 acres of lush tropical gardens, our eco-chic, luxury hotel provides all the comforts of a 5 star resort without compromising the natural habitat that thrives around it. Our open-air facilities, extensive beach and detached rooms allow you to unwind in isolated luxury. Each of the 7 Beachfront and 3 Garden Suites features a spacious split level lounge and patio, while the large wrap-around decks and private plunge pools of the 17 Hillside Pool Suites afford the added luxury of soaking up the Caribbean sun from the privacy of your own sun bathing deck. Whether enjoying lunch by the pool, dining in the beachfront restaurant, or having breakfast in bed, every meal feels privately catered. The menus change daily and feature freshly squeezed local juices, locally grown produce, and organic ingredients. At Hermitage Bay, all dishes are prepared to order, special requests are encouraged, and we are always happy to help with dietary requirements. Non-motorised water sports are included and a shuttle service to and from town and Shirley Heights is available for an additional charge. ... more   less
